February 4. The Canadian blogger seems desperate for attention, so we figured to finally give him a spot on our Dark Side of Animal Rescue website.
Let’s zoom in on what the hate page admin refers to. We’ll do this by publishing the blogger’s first email to Viktor Larkhill who sent him the video of Dorian the Husky. It served as an invitation to get to know the organization the blogger wrote about without having any first-hand knowledge! The blogger responded on August 9. Just click the image for a larger version, it will open in a new window.
We won’t be disclosing the entire email thread in which the blogger was kindly invited by the Turkish representative of LAG in Istanbul to visit and see how Let’s Adopt! Global operates. We will however share some of how Viktor Larkhill answered various questions that had arisen: ( Click image )
In the following exchange you can see how the blogger praises the work of Let’s Adopt! Global ( I thank you for your reassuring statements ) and Viktor’s response preferring for his answers to not be included in the Canadian blog and explaining why not: ( Click image )
Next we will show you the blogger’s reply to the Turkish representative of LAG in Istanbul: ( Click image )
Viktor did as he promised and one day after they corresponded, he unblocked the LAG page for Canada, so the blogger would be able to see the albums and the rescues. (Click image)
No doubt that some of Viktor’s and LAG’s so called detractors will focus on the remark abou the world’s most intelligent and most transparent scammers
completely missing out on the irony or humor with a bite expressing a more than rightful indignation about the blogger’s articles.
Let’s view the situation so far, shall we?
The blogger would take a few days to think of questions he’d like to ask the Turkish representative in Istanbul. In the meantime he was also invited to take a look at the Let’s Adopt! Global albums on their Facebook page.
It remained silent for almost a week. And then…
The blogger did not respond in the already existing email thread, but sent a new message titled Temporarily ceasing communication instead:
We don’t really want to spend a lot of time explaining this blogger’s apparent modus operandi or meager apologetics. Therefore we hope they speak for themselves.
His own words.
Because look at what he said in the secret group he was part of:
Objective campaign? Really? And 84 cents to keep at it? Harassing Let’s Adopt! Global for making ONE PENNY donations, just so they can post comments on the Chip In page, visible for the public? Because they can’t post on LAG’s Facebook page anymore, and they’re desperate to communicate their … opinions?
The following paragraph is the end of the blogger’s first article. Insinuating that animals may suffer in the hands of one or a select few…
(update February 14: there seems to be some confusion about WHY we also refer to an article of the blogger in which he criticizes the actions of a man bringing his dog to a certain rally just to provoke. We point out certain issues and the blogger’s obvious reluctance to name things for what they are, or use the words Muslims and Islam in his article. He wrote in the same way about Let’s Adopt! Global, without mentioning the organization’s name, at first. His reasons and motivation for doing so should not have to be spelled out by us. Further more, as explained as well, our argument against singling out a certain culture or a religion (Islam and the Muslim community at large) to confront about their alleged maltraitance of dogs is based on the travesty of such allegations and accusations, because in our own Western society dogs, and animals in general, suffer immensely at the hands of human beings. One doesn’t have to be a vegan or vegetarian to be able to acknowledge and speak out against the abuse in slaughterhouses, breeding facilities and more specified to dogs, dogs used in dog fights, for breeding in puppy mills, abuse at home or the killing of thousands and thousands of dogs (and cats) in the shelter systems. The reason why we also added a video about early science and its Arabic or Islamic origine, serves the sole purpose of educating those for whom ignorance, and in this matter also prejudice, was or is a conceived notion and belief on which they base the idea that Muslims are merely illiterate savages with primitive values and morals who hate dogs. Check the Facebook page of the Vafa Animal Shelter in Iran or their regular website. Just browse their albums, meet the staff and volunteers (both men and women, and the women wearing their head scarf or hijab) and please, think again. Or visit this page, Good Muslims Love Dogs.
And realize ignorance truly is an embarrassment. We’ll post one of the comments at the end of this article.)
Posture without substance sure seems to have won from sincere benevolence. Let’s take a look at another article from his hand, referred to on the website of The American Muslim, the to stir things up link.
Not once does the blogger mention the words Muslims or Islam. Not once. Why not? What is he afraid of? Just look how he writes Out of courtesy to a culture that is not always comfortable with dogs. A generalization so far from the truth it really is embarrassing. Spoken by an obvious ignoramus in Canada, a western society where BSL (Breed Specified Legislation) discriminates and murders dogs simply because of their race and looks.
The blogger also fails to distinct between culture and religion, which is of great significance in the tiresome discussion whether Muslims do or do not like dogs. We really recommend for you to read Sheila Musaji’s article and then compare notes.
How many people do you know who don’t like dogs? Who hate for them to jump up on them and leave hairs on their clothes? Who do not want for a dog to lick their hands or anything they have to wash off with disinfectant soap as in a compulsive urge? Who only like dogs as long as they stay outside in the yard, on a leash. Who teach their kids to be afraid of big dogs, but fail to tell them about nasty overbred Jack Russell terriers in hyperactive mode 24/7? And how many of these people you know are Muslim, or rather, NOT Muslim?
“in which one party has members that are known to be uncomfortable”
Again an excerpt taken from the blogger’s article. Are these the words of a coward, or a bigot who won’t admit to it, but can’t deny either?
He can definitely shake hands with the admin of a certain Facebook page who shares the same bigotry and takes pride in it whenever she can. We initially wanted to present the both of them together, but the Blogger’s Own Words take up quite some time and space already, we’d much rather save the admin for Ignorance is an Embarrassment part III.
